I finally got my review of Learning GNU Emacs, 3rd Edition from O'Reilly out the door last night. For those like myself who are coming into the Linux and Free/Open Source Software game later in life, books like this really help to backfill your knowledge/skill sets in a timely manner. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to move beyond the basic Gnome and KDE text editors into a more serious text editing tool that has both a GUI and console modes. That is, if you are considering Emacs.
And no, this is not an invitation to an Emacs vs. vi flamefest. I use both. 8^)
